Best months for Wildlife Viewing in Tanzania:
The dry season from June to November is said to be the best time to visit any of the national parks in Northern and Southern Tanzania. This is when wildlife viewing is at a premium as the animals gather round the waterholes and rivers. This is also when there are the most tourists, so expect it to be very busy and be aware that lodge accommodation gets booked up well in advance

If you want to witness the Annual Wildebeest Migration on a safari in Serengeti and Ngorongoro the best time to catch it in south-eastern Serengeti is from Jan to April when the wildebeest and zebra have their young. This is also a good time to see the predators; lion, cheetah, leopard and hunting dogs

The raining season is generally from March to May in the North and from November to May in the South And West, during this time the roads deteriorate and some become impassable. Selous and Ruaha National Parks are usually closed during March and April. With the abundance of water and the sheer size of Tanzania's parks, the animals are more spread out, this means longer distance of travel to view the wildlife.
